Catholic school board to spend half as much on capital

KEMPTVILLE – With a big ticket item out of the way, the Catholic District School Board will spend half as much on capital this fall.

The board approved its $166 million balanced budget for 2015-16 on Tuesday night, which has $4.2 million earmarked for capital projects.

Last year, the CDSBEO spent $10.6 million on capital, namely the $6.6 million Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place.

The overall size of the budget is about the same as 2014-15.

Money for school fix-ups and repairs ($3.9 million) is also the same as last year.
